Default Re: Weird Theories about everything.

Theories that lack empirical evidence are little more than wishful thinking. Sure they might be interesting what-ifs but I find a lot of unnecessary energy is wasted trying to validate ridiculous claims for the sake of some personal satisfaction (religion being a good example).

The adage "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence" is good to keep in mind here.

If a theory is considered "weird" then it would fall into the extraordinary category and to echo goldstinger, really wouldn't be worth talking about unless there are enough supporting facts to consider and talk about. Every example given in this thread so far has been pure conjecturing.
